General Public: All CLEP exams can be taken at the Bloomfield College Test Center. CLEP examinations are awarded for college credit. We recommend checking with with your institution's advisor to see which CLEP exams are applicable, how credits will be awarded, and to learn what your institution's CLEP policy is.


For Bloomfield College Students:

Because not all college-level learning takes place in the classroom, Bloomfield College accepts credit through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).

To register for CLEP exams, Bloomfield College students must have:

  • Completed a minimum of one semester at the College before taking a CLEP exam

  • Completed any necessary foundation courses

  • Completed the prerequisite(s) for the course for which they wish to take the CLEP exam

  • A cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher

Examination credit is applicable to the fulfillment of the major and General Education requirements, subject to the approval of the advisor for that major.

CLEP exams cannot be taken as a repeat of a course already taken at any institution.

A maximum of 16 course units may be earned through CLEP exams (including College Board Placement examinations). Contact your advisor to find out if you qualify.  CLEP credits accepted in transfer are subject to evaluation criteria established by Bloomfield College.
